Slideshow

Located in the city of Gulf Shores on the coast of Alabama, white sun-kissed beaches, a surging surf, seagulls and seashells greet you at Gulf State Park. Consisting of 6,150 acres with two miles of sugar white sand beaches, Gulf State Park has a modern campground, cabins, cottages, Back Country Trails, and the largest Fishing Pier in the Gulf of Mexico!

We also have an interactive Nature Center, new Tennis Courts, a beautiful Beach Pavilion, the 18-hole Refuge Golf Course, and a 900 Acre Lake for fishing in our Picnic Area on Lake Shelby.

 

"I feel like our every need was anticipated. Never have we been to such a well-run accomodating State Park. I can't reiterate enough how CLEAN everything was from the cabins, to the shower houses, to the laundro-mat. Thank you Gulf State Park for an unforgettable family vacation!"
- Josh & Krystal, Owensboro, KY

 
 
"My parents have been taking us (their four children) to the GSP cabins every year since the early 1980's. We now bring our children (altogether six so far), and the experience is never short of spectacular. Whether it's finding mussels with our toes in Lake Shelby, kayaking one of its many sloughs, catching hermit crabs in Little Lagoon, watching the osprey fish in the evening sun, exploring the many trails, or any other of the can't-miss experiences that now outnumber our typical length of stay, it is always a vacation that is priceless, both as a child and now as a parent. From my family to all the GSP employees, thank you for all that you do to make it possible. We'll see you again next year, but hopefully sooner! Sincerely, the Ballard family."
